Hyde Park Gym is a friendly neighborhood gym that’s about fitness without the frills. At this minimalist facility, there aren't distracting TVs, loud music or pesky salespeople. What you will find is 7,500 square feet of exercise equipment, including gear for powerlifting, Olympic weightlifting, strongman and bars. All fitness levels and ages are welcome, and doors are open 365 days a year. Finding the gym is easy: just spot the building with the giant muscled arm holding a dumbbell sticking out of it.
Living in an active city like Austin means there’s no shortage of fun things to do, amazing restaurants to try and incredible cocktail bars to check out. But exploring all that the Texas capital has to offer may also mean that, unless you're signed up at one of Austin's best gyms, your fitness ends up on the backburner. Get back on track with your exercise and health goals (or start off on the right foot with your New Year’s resolution) by joining one of the top Austin gyms, whether you're into pilates or plyometrics.
